    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Like someone said further up, the warm weather brings the problems! In town was loud likely drunken idiots, gangs of kids/teens everywhere saw some teenagers wind up someone with mental health problems and kick them! then laugh when they were chased (reminded me of what happened to me 2 months ago) the substance abusers were buying alcohol for those same teenagers (girls funnily enough)


    Some idiot almost whacked into me with a pram then started shouting at me in a European language whilst waving fist (they full on just shoved pram in front of me not giving me chance to move)


    The person across the road has decided to work on his motorbike from 8am, the "single mum" above has more friends than usual round.


    Oh well.


    Hoping its not this warm on Tuesday and Wednesday as have job interviews and don't want to turn up for interview soaked in sweat with visible patches!

    Today's 'Dontone's irritations'

    People who drive at least 10/15 miles below the speed limit when there is no good reason to. Been to my Mam's today, and got stuck behind 2 of them. One on the High Street doing 16mph in a 30mph zone, and another one on the 60mph bypass, doing a whopping 32mph.
    They go on about folk speeding, these people are just as bad. It's frustrating.
    And one of those 'when I'm in charge' thoughts. People on mobility scooters. Come across one earlier driving towards me, on my side of the road, and virtually in the middle of my side. Wouldn't have minded, but the pavement is rather wide and has dips so you can ride up onto it. No excuse for driving like a wally, especially when the bit he was pootling towards is a blind bend. There should be a law, where you have to take a test to prove you can operate one safely, you actually need one, and you have to have insurance, say, a tenner a year.
    And BBQ's. Nothing more annoying than having your washing out on the line, and some berk decides that the BBQ is coming out. And they cook what smells like already cremated, 3 day old roadkill on a flame no hotter than a candle. The stench is awful.
    That's all. Carry On

    We had our washing out today too, but no BBQ's.
    I'm expecting BBQ's tomorrow though.

    Just as well you don't live near me. I had a wood fire lit at 5 this morning and am now blobbing next to my stinky BBQ with a chicken in it.

    I did check that none of my neighbours had washing out before lighting the BBQ, but as we are all, apparently, good God fearing folk around here, no washing is out.

    People that feel the need to go to the beach/seaside when its warm weather. I don't see the attraction of stuck in traffic, difficulty getting a car park space, queuing ages for ice creams, toilet etc and crowded beaches. Remember my friend and her parents did this one day 5-10 years ago. They drove the 2,5 hours to the seaside, spent about half an hour going around the few car parks to find no spaces, then drove back home. Spent at least 6 hours in a hot car when they could have spent the time nearer to home or in their back garden.

    We've barely emerged from winter, my heating has only been off a few days, yet we're only a month away from the longest day.
